Namibia are at home, so they do not have a touring party, they are the host country. I think you should be posting Uruguay's touring party.

The Namibian RU facebook page points towards a stream that the national newspaper "Republikein" will provide. The newspaper website is behind a paywall though, so I've no idea as to whether you can only view the livestream inside Namibia.

Glad to see Obert Nortje being called up, he had an astonishing performance with Namibia U20 at WR U20 Trophy

Nortje is excellent. Ready for senior rugby in the front row at 20 - future pro I would think.

Also it is good to see more native African names in the Namibian squad.

actually I am surprised he wasn't signed until now by a pro club, even for an academy squad.

FT 36-53. Uruguay almost threw away a game that was always for them...

I think this is the first time Namibia are loosing in Windhoek. Namibia NEVER loose at home, just ask Russia, Germany, Spain and Kenya.

any video?

Uruguay is pretty strong, Canada be careful. However, the Canadians showed that with their best team they are still favorites. But Uruguay will fight for that.

See post #4, it's up on their facebook feed, seperated into two. Some shots give a 'filmed with a iPhone' feel to it.

I couldn't watch the match, I had a family reunion.

This is Uruguay's first test match win at the rival teams's country since Portugal 2011. (We did win matches at neutral venues.)

I'm cautiously confident about the World Cup repechage versus Canada.

Windhoek is a tough place to play, altitude and often heat. Good win for Uruguay who look sharp heading into RWCQ.

Windhoek is a desert, if a tier 2 nation wins there, they must be really good. Germany, Russia and Spain all fell short in Windhoek. These are the strongest T2s in Europe outside Georgia and Romania.

I didn't know it was a desert, makes sense I guess.

Yeah I am really impressed with Uruguay's progress. Quietly I think they will be nipping at the heels of some T2 sides. Their quality of athlete seems to have improved lately, in addition to the good technical skills the Teros have always had.

Spain won in Windhoek in 2012, by only one point, but we won there.

Sorry, yeah Spain won there by a point. Bottom line is Windhoek is Desert Country, if you are not prepared and well conditioned as a player for the heat, you could easily burn out in the first 20 mins. Namibia have never beaten Kenya outside Windhoek, that is why they always force Rugby Afrique for us to travel to desert territory where they are acclimatized to. You need to stay at least a week in Windhoek to acclimatize and shake off the jet lag, or else.....

You can also say so to Russia, won there in January 2010 by 15 points.

I'm talking about the most recent matches not backdated matches 7 years ago.
